Travel to Saratov

by marcobrescia Online Now May 27, 2010 at 9:03 AM

Hallo.
Next wednesday I'll arrive in Saratov for a 2 days touristic visit.
My (probably stupid) two questions are:
- at the airport can i easily find a taxi service (i'll arrive late in the evening and i don't speak Russian but only English and a little bit of Spanish)?
- At the airport will i find an information desk?
Thank you in advance.
Marco

    I was in Saratov in 2001 and I really enjoyed it there. The airport was very quiet. When a plane came in, the taxi drivers waited outside like predators waiting for a bounty of new-found prey. Planes = money to taxi drivers, so you will probably be able to get a ride.

    I recommend you use either an online translation program or a Russian-speaking friend to write out your destination on a sheet of paper. Then you just show the paper to the driver and say "Skolka." (How much.) Know the price of the ride before you get in.

    Another thing you could do is call the hotel and ask them to get you a driver.

    Thank you so much for your replies. I'll keep in mind your suggestions.
    The hotel should be near to the airport, i think between 4 and 6 km, so the price should be not more than 300 Rubles (probably lesser). Am i worng?
    Ok, before anything else, hotel name written in cyrillic letters and "skolka".
    Thanks a lot.
